Your rights, explained

Hello and thank you for visiting.

Article 39 children’s rights charity has made this site so that children and young people who live away from home know their rights.

We want you to be listened to, respected and to have a great childhood and future. Knowing your rights can help make this happen.

    Enter one of our sections to find out about your rights if you live in a children’s home,
    a hospital or other health place, immigration detention, a prison,
    a school or secure children’s home.

    We had some great help from adults too. Read on to see our roll of honour…
